What are Tapered Plugs?
Tapered plugs, an integral component within the precision engineering ecosystem, are uniquely crafted to fit snugly into smooth or threaded holes, ensuring a tight seal.
Their distinctive tapered design allows them to cater to a range of diameters, making them an indispensable asset in tasks requiring effective sealing or protection against contaminants. Whether you're safeguarding vital components or preventing paint ingress during finishing processes, tapered plugs and stoppers are your go-to solution.
How A Tapered Plug Works.
The genius of a tapered plug lies in its elegant design. When inserted into a hole, its conical shape ensures a tight and secure fit, adapting to the contours of the aperture. This provides an effective barrier against dust, debris, or even liquids.
Accus Range of standard, large flange, and pull tab types cater to various application needs, be it ease of insertion, removal, or providing a broader sealing area. Thus, with their strategic design, tapered plastic plugs provide a seamless sealing experience.
What Material Tapered Plugs Are Made From.
To serve the multifaceted demands of precision engineering, Accu's tapered range of plugs are produced using a variety of materials. These range from Low-Density Polyethylene and PVC, known for their robustness and affordability, to silicone tapered plugs for paint applications, hailed for their temperature resilience and adaptability. Whether you're seeking a solution that can withstand high heat, need an alternative to tapered rubber plugs, or need a plug that is easy to remove, the choice of material ensures you have the perfect fit for your specific requirements.
What Size and Type of Tapered Plugs Are Available.

Q: What is a tapered plug?.
A: A tapered plug is a precision-engineered component designed to fit securely into holes or cavities, providing a seal or protection against contaminants.
Q: Why is it called tapered?.
A: These plugs are termed 'tapered' due to their conical shape which narrows towards one end, enabling it to fit snuggly across a range of hole diameters.
Q: How do I determine the right tapered plug size for my task?.
A: The ideal size corresponds to the diameter of the hole or cavity you wish to seal. Accu offers plugs suitable for a wide array of diameters, from 4.6mm to 99.7mm.
Q: Can tapered plugs resist high temperatures?.
A: Yes, especially the silicone tapered plugs, which are known for their high-temperature resilience and adaptability.
Q: Is there a minimum order quantity for tapered plugs at Accu?.
A: Accu aims to serve every client's unique project needs. Depending on your requirements, you can purchase a single plug or place bulk orders. Our team is happy to assist no matter what you require.
